Palatial villas. Champagne-soaked yachts. Pebble beaches. The turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The allure of Belle Epoque. The French Riviera, also known as the Côte d’Azur, checks off all of the boxes for a positively magical summer vacation. There’s aristocratic Monaco, where the per-capita population of billionaires is among the highest on the planet; there’s the red carpet glamour of Cannes; there’s St.-Tropez, France’s fifth-largest city and playground for celebrities and socialites; and there’s the lesser-known coastal towns of Antibes, Vallauris and Mougins, beloved by artists like Picasso.
In honor of one of our favorite summertime luxury destinations, we’ve collected an enviable cache of Côte d’Azur properties for sale and marketed by the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury℠ program. From a palatial $105 million Belle Epoque mansion in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin to a $4.5 million modern Provence-style villa in Mougins, these residences are giving us serious daydreams of summering in the South of France. We just might never come back…
